Following on from Kieran Buchanan’s inclusion in the Scotland squad, Greg Johnson is the latest Bulldog to receive an International call up as he joins the Jamaica Squad this week, the two could well meet each other in the forthcoming fixture between the sides. The England Knights squad named at the weekend, who will face Jamaica this Friday, also includes Batley lads Jack Broadbent and Levi Edwards, both of who proved very popular during loan spells at The Fox’s Biscuits Stadium.
Jamaica director of rugby and senior head coach Romeo Monteith and lead coach Jermaine Coleman have named their 21-man squad for Friday’s representative clash with England Knights at Castleford’s Mend-A-Hose Jungle (kick off 7.45pm). The match is also being played for Reggae Warrior and Tiger Jordan Turner’s testimonial (pictured).
Craig Lingard has added even more pace and flair to his backs with the addition of Half Back James Meadows from London Broncos.
With Loan spells at the Skolars and Sheffield Eagles, James has made 40 appearances for the London Side, featuring 11 times in the 2018 campaign as the Broncos made promotion to Super League.
Equally comfortable playing in the Halves or at Full Back, he brings more versatility to the squad as The Bulldogs look to build on the 2021 season.
Welcome to Batley!
